"An evaluation of the Diploma in Primary Health Care Education (DPHCE), a course offered in the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, was carried out between February and September 1991. This paper discusses the implications of the findings for the future of the program, and the development of Primary Health Care (PHC) education more generally. The following in particular are dealt with:
— an educational approach where teaching has been insufficiently linked to the daily working conditions of the students; and
— teaching a group of students consisting of individuals from both educationally advantaged and disadvantaged backgrounds.
The importance of clearly defined goals and an appropriate educational framework, consistent with the limitations that apartheid education has placed on educationally disadvantaged students, are highlighted."
